Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit Discussion

Murderous Redcap plus Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit is an infinite damage instant win combo and they both can be resurrected with Alesha. I agree tho that this is a solid build and doesn't need the combo while still potentially benefiting from it. In my opinion Dead of Winter should not be in the sideboard since you have no nonland snow permanents and you are playing a lot of your own minions and you have enough removal. I recommend you replace it with a mass graveyard exile effect. Also Fulminator Mage is very good as a 3 of in the sideboard and is good against tron and again can be resurrected with Alesha and Unearth. Final Thoughts: take out 3 Dead of Winter, 1 Surgical Extraction, and 2 Inquisition of Kozilek from side board and put in 3 Fulminator Mage and 3 Nihil Spellbomb.

I think you're doing it right so far. Rather than throw a lot of card suggestions at you, I'll point to 3 decks I have that are centered around +1/+1 counters, and let you peruse them. One is mono-green, and the other two are Simic, so take it as you like.

Also, though, Ajani, Wise Counselor, Ajani, Inspiring Leader, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Archangel of Thune, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Faeburrow Elder, Bloom Tender, Leyline Prowler and Cryptolith Rite.

That's a lot to absorb, but I'll add also that this deck seems ripe for including the Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista combo. Both cards would work independently in this deck, and the infinite loop possibility would be always there.

Sorry for the long comment. Cheers!

Alright, so to make this a 7-8 I'd add in dredge cards; they fill your yard so fast. I kind of wish it gave counters to creatures as they entered not as it entered :( itd open up some really cool lines and offer a lot of good protection. Anyways, here are some ways to fill the yard.

Stinkweed Imp

Golgari Grave-Troll

Golgari Thug

Stitcher's Supplier

Altar of Dementia

Spawning Pit

Phyrexian Altar

Ashnod's Altar

As for combo pieces; a basic aristocrats strategy would be pretty easy; here are some cards if you wanted some ideas-if you want me to break down the line I will :)

Blood Artist

Zulaport Cutthroat

Carrion Feeder

Viscera Seer


Karmic Guide

Young Wolf

Vizer Of Remedies

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit

Lesser Masticore

I never said that Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit will not trigger. I said that SBA's will be checked before the trigger is put to the stack resulting in the creature dying before the trigger gets put to the stack.

Basically, the trigger of Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit would not save the 0/0 creature.

If i have Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit on the battlefield and resurrect a 0 toughness creature (for example an X/X of any kind), can i bolster this creature before it dies to keep it in play?

If that is possible, does it work if Anafenza enters the battlefield at the same time?

Ye I'm brewing an Alesha deck at the moment and looking at some combo's. I decided to use Metallic Mimic and/or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit over Vizier of Remedies though, as both of these seem less dead outside of the combo.

Thanks for the inspiration. I like what you're doing with Edgar here.

One of the most obvious combos is Vizier of Remedies + Murderous Redcap + any sac outlet. (You can have Cathars' Crusade or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit instead of Vizier of Remedies for the combo) Unless disrupted, this combo deals infinite damage to any number of players/ creatures. How the combo works:

Step 1. Sacrifice Murderous Redcap

Step 2. Persist Triggers and Murderous Redcap is back

Step 3. Murderous Redcap trigger is put on the stack

Step 4. Vizier of Remedies triggers - resolve this one first

Step 5. Murderous Redcap deals damage

Rinse and repeat.

Note about this combo - if your sac outlet is Altar of Dementia you can mill one player while killing another one. Other sac maybe Ashnod's Altar, Blasting Station, Phyrexian Altar, Phyrexian Tower, Goblin Bombardment, Yahenni, Undying Partisan

Yea, if you include a sacrifice outlet, such as Viscera Seer, Yahenni, Undying Partisan or an altar of some sort, being phyrexian, ashnod's, or of dementia, you can infinite loop with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit or mimic
